    Good read

    Interesting read about something I knew nothing about. I did not know about how things were and are for Koreans living in Japan. You get to know the characters over 4 generations very well.

    This was an excellent story of the history of the relationship between family's of Korea and Japan. It was written in such a way to involve the reader in the emotional lives of the people of both countries. A very informative and enjoyable read.

    Best book I ever read. It kept my interest all the way through. No more had to be said. I would like to read Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee now.

    Wonderful generational l book. I am nearly finished. I fear whatever I read next will not be so written. The book flows. The people are well developed. I love that the book gives me a look into two cultures I know little about. I recently read Jodi Picoult's novel, Great Little Things. both books are a study in bigoted, inherited racism. Gives me pause for thought. None of us are as good as we think we are.
